docker.binary

since 2018-10-01, removed 2019-08-02 (v0.114.0)

You can now create a Docker image with multiple binaries.

dockers:
- image: foo/bar
  binary: foo
dockers:
- image: foo/bar
  binaries:
  - foo

docker.image

since 2018-10-20, removed 2019-08-02 (v0.114.0)

This property was deprecated in favor of more flexible image_templates. The idea is to be able to define several images and tags using templates instead of just one image with tag templates. This flexibility allows images to be pushed to multiple registries.

dockers:
- image: foo/bar
  tag_templates:
    - '{{ .Tag }}'
dockers:
- image_templates:
    - 'foo/bar:{{ .Tag }}'

docker.tag_templates

since 2018-10-20, removed 2019-08-02 (v0.114.0)

This property was deprecated in favor of more flexible image_templates. The idea is to be able to define several images and tags using templates instead of just one image with tag templates.

dockers:
- image: foo/bar
  tag_templates:
    - '{{ .Tag }}'
dockers:
- image_templates:
    - 'foo/bar:{{ .Tag }}'

git.short_hash

since 2018-10-03, removed 2019-01-19 (v0.98.0)

This property was being used to tell GoReleaser to use short git hashes instead of the full ones. This has been removed in favor of specific template variables (.FullCommit and .ShortCommit).

git:
  short_hash: true

fake:
  foo_template: 'blah {{ .Commit }}'
fake:
  foo_template: 'blah {{ .ShortCommit }}'

fpm

since 2018-02-17, removed 2017-08-15 (v0.83.0)

FPM is deprecated in favor of nfpm, which is a simpler alternative written in Go. The objective is to remove the ruby dependency thus simplify the CI/CD pipelines.

Just replace the fpm keyword by nfpm in your goreleaser.yaml file.

fpm:
  # ...
nfpm:
  # ...

docker.tag_template

since 2018-01-19, removed 2017-08-15 (v0.83.0)

This property was deprecated in favor of the pluralized tag_templates. The idea is to be able to define several tags instead of just one.

dockers:
- image: foo/bar
  tag_template: '{{ .Tag }}'
dockers:
- image: foo/bar
  tag_templates:
    - '{{ .Tag }}'

docker.latest

since 2018-01-19, removed 2017-08-15 (v0.83.0)

The latest field in Docker config is deprecated in favor of the newer tag_templates field.

dockers:
- image: foo/bar
  latest: true
dockers:
- image: foo/bar
  tag_templates:
    - '{{ .Tag }}'
    - latest
